My name is Anton Khodakovsky. I have more than 23 years of experience in the field of graphic design, and I’ve been designing books for over 10 years, in genres ranging from spiritual guides to thrillers, and from popular science to poetry.
I've designed hundreds of titles, and know how to create a cover that stands out. The quality of my work is on par with the NYC major publishers—check my portfolio and see for yourself.
Some of my clients: Atticus Books (Kensington, MD), HolyCow! Press (Duluth, MN), HIS Publishing Group (Dallas, TX), Greenleaf Book Group (Austin, TX), Éditions Kéruss (Québec, Canada), and dozens of independent authors from across the United States.
My family and I live in Antalya, Turkey. We had moved there from Moscow 4 years ago because the Mediterranean climate suits us much better. I love my wife and daughter and it's good to be able to work from home and spend more time together.
After a career of web design, creative design and illustration in advertising and print, I've finally found my favorite field of book design.
